    I heard a rumor that Playmakers won't be back because of all the pressure the NFL is putting on ESPN? Can anyone confirm or deny that rumor? Thx.

    If you get HBO, try and catch the latest episode of Real Sports. They did a nice 10 minute piece on it. Seems the NFL will be putting the kybosh on this one. Bastages.

    I think that they already used up all of the stereotypes of NFL athletes. [​IMG]

    So the NFL doesn't like the show because it depicts the NFL as it really is?

    Well the gist of it wasn't that they were showing these things that have happened. Its that they were showing them week after week after week.

    Have you heard Lawarnce Taylor comments recently? Playmakers seems tame when you compare it to that...

    it's been rumored that this show MIGHT show up on another network. although i wouldn't hold my breath.

    i would love to see another season though.
